Panasonic's design studio Future Life Factory, with avant-garde Japanese designer Kunihiko Morinaga, have created Wear Space which are essentially glorified horse blinders for people who work in open-plan offices. They are designed to create "psychological personal space"
WEAR SPACE is a wearable device designed to aid concentration by limiting your senses of sight and hearing, via noise-canceling technology and a partition that controls your field of view.
As open offices and digital nomads are on the rise, workers are finding it ever more important to have personal space where they can focus. WEAR SPACE instantly creates this kind of personal space – it’s as simple as putting on an article of clothing. The device can be adjusted based on the level of concentration you desire, so it adapts to the various situations you’ll find yourself in...
Wear Space is currently available to preorder through a Japanese crowdfunding campaign for ¥29,000 (approx. $259).

So while we’re sure those new PowerBeats Pro earbuds are something special, why would you shell out $250 for a tiny pair of speakers when comparable ones are […]
